Irish Flag Inspired Leopard Print

Here's my first of three St. Patrick's Day designs for this year! Woohoo! I was afraid I wasn't going to have time to do any, but was able to squeeze some in thankfully. ^.^

For this mani, I put down a base of OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, with Sinful Colors Envy, Wet'n'Wild White, and NYC Times Square Tangerine simulating the stripes of Ireland's flag in leopard spots.

I actually quite like how these turned out! I wasn't sure at first, but it is a kind of different take on the infamous and overdone leopard print, I think! I figured everyone is still using leopard print and finding ways to make it seasonally appropriate (i.e. turning them into hearts for Valentine's Day last year), so I wanted to take the print and try to make it St. Patrick's Day themed! ^.^
